I'm using the latest stable version of rdesktop (1.3.0), compiled as a
static executable. Everything is working fine (I hacked our Neoware Capio
508 thin clients to use that executable over NFS) but one thing.
As an example, in Excel, I can do CTRL+F and search for values. HOWEVER, if
I put my keyboard on Caps Lock on, I can't do it anymore? Is there anyone
with the same problem? I did not check the source yet, nor the CVS version.
I'm using the -4 switch on the command line because we are using a W2K TS
Server and it doesn't seem to like when I don't specifyu what protocol
rdesktop should use (it logs an encryption error in the event log).
I'm using the stock "fr-ca" keyboard mappings which look fine.
Thanks a lot.
As a side note, I notice that my windows (flag) button on my keyboard
doesn't work too.

rdesktop never sends caps lock changes to the server; it simulates them
by using shifts. So, when you press Ctrl+F, the server gets
Ctrl+Shift+F, which seems to mean something else than
I don't have any solution to this problem now, but please submit this as
a bug to the SF bug tracker.
